Slipknot's Tortilla Man

Fans Appear To Have Finally Uncovered The Identity Of Slipknot’s ‘Tortilla Man’


A new fan theory on Reddit appears to present the most convincing argument yet when it comes to the identity of Slipknot‘s mystery percussionist, commonly referred to as ‘Tortilla Man’. It seems band guitarist Jim Root‘s recent comments of the unidentified musician being a world-class pianist may have been a too big of a hint, pointing fans in the direction of a bandmate of the group’s percussionist M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan.

That musician is Michael Pfaff, who is a member of Crahan‘s Dirty Little Rabbits, handling the keyboards and organ. In addition to a similar build, height and balding hair style, Redditors uncovered Pfaff‘s immediate family mysteriously following “#tortillaman” and other hashtags related to the newest member of Slipknot on social media.

You can dig into more of their findings over on Reddit. ‘Tortilla Man’ joined the band on the road this year following the firing of Chris Fehn over an ongoing financial dispute with members of the group that has been playing out in court.
